”With exhilarating teamwork, humor and educational instincts, the two musicians charmed an eager crowd.
Grammy-nominated violinist Tessa Lark, the recipient of a 2016 Avery Fisher Career Grant and a 2018 Borletti-Buitoni Trust Fellowship Award, and virtuoso composer/bassist Michael Thurber have come together to create a duo unlike any other. By fusing their classical and American music influences, they have created a wholly original sound, which they bring to audiences around the country in a charismatic live show.
This concert will happen at Sheslow Auditorium, a beautiful recital hall with 776 seats located on Drake University’s campus, just west of the Varsity Theater on 25th Street. Sheslow is physically joined to Old Main, with Sheslow located at the north end of the structure. Entrances are located on the east and west sides of the building.
